Dawta Ali is a second generation seamstress, who was raised in a home where designing and architecting creativity were in abundance. She started designing at the age of 7, drawing her ideas out for her mom who would then create them. In her late teens, she began a reconstructed denim line, that consisted of unique, custom pieces which incorporated other textiles, including African wax prints.
Dawta’s family ties to Ghana and passion for Africa, has allowed her to immerse herself in the textile industry in Africa, which continues to inspire, teach and fuel her creativity.
We’re totally in love with the label’s laid-back chic and pretty prints.
